'Stranger Things' Renewed by Netflix for Season 4


The streaming giant has handed out a fourth-season renewal to breakout hit Stranger Things and signed its creators, brothers Matt and Ross Duffer, to a multiple-year film and TV overall deal that sources say is worth nine figures. The news arrives nearly three months after the third season of the streamer's 1980s-set sci-fi drama returned after more than a year off the proverbial air. A return date for season four has not yet been determined.

In the larger scheme of things, it's unclear if season four will be the last for Stranger Things as the Duffers have been open about the drama not being a long-running show. The duo have said over the years that they see it running for anywhere between four and six seasons.

Surprise, suprise!

Not really. While the announcement did come a little late, I doubt many people weren’t expecting the show to get another season.

Though I can only imagine the backlash Netflix would have gotten if they decided not to renew the show.

May the tradition of rinse and repeats continue !

NetFlix has to be on bad finances to wait so long to green light their highest rated show. They should have made season 2 and 3 and even 4 all at the same time when the iron was hot. Now we have 11 year old kids that will be 20 something by the time season 5 comes around. The Duffers didn't want this to be a long running show but they sure as shit didn't want to be filming college kids as their final season.
Bad move NetFlix.

Yeah but due to the coronavirus quarentine, it might not be filmed until perhaps fall and air sometimes next year!

More of the same...can't wait. Last season started off kind of good, but then it devolved into the same old stale storyline that they will probably continue next season also. Can't they try something different when it comes to the supernatural?
